Walt ay, the hours bring night and night brings morn, The old .wheel forces on the waning day, Walt, till the pale tomorrow shall be born, As little gracious, and In turn decay.

A MERITORIOUS ORDIXAXCE. Seldom Is an ordinance drafted that has more real merit than the one providing for the regulation of the dairy business In Pendleton. Tills ordinance as it now reads will do some good for the people of the city if passed by the council and properly enforced. The ordinance strictly prohibits the sale of milk from tuberculosis cows. It requires that dairymen take proper sanitary care of utensils in which milk Is kept or delivered and It bars them from leaving their own cans or bottles at homes where contagious disease prevails. Furthermore, the ordinance fixes a standard of quality for the milk and cream that Is sold within the city. Cream must contain not less than 18 per cent of butter fat. while milk must measure up to at least 2 Per cent under the Babcock test. It Is held that milk that does not meas ure ud to this standard has either been watered or has been separated from Its cream. The people of the city are entitled to the passage of this ordinance. They are entitled to receive wholesome milk from dairymen and undoubted ly the most effective way of obtain ing It is by means of an ordinance such as has been drafted by Drs. Cole and McCiure. It may be that the passage of the ordinance will work a hardship on sc me dairymen. Loss for someone Is Involved in every reform whether grr-at small. But It Is hard to con ceive how an honest dairyman could object to any of the thing contained In the ordinance now up. The East Orf-gonian does not believe they will. They are good citizens and will prob ably welcome the ordinance as much a.-: other people. But whether the dairymen like It or not the ordinance proposed Is a step in the right direction. It Is per fectly right and proper for the coun cil to handle such a subject and the aldermen will not go wrong In pass ing the ordinance that has been draft ed or one similar to It. SPIRIT OF OOXCILLATIOX. The Canadian conciliation board has succeeded in settling the trouble on the Canadian Pacific and the shop men return to work, having gained In fact their object after a dispute last ing several weeks. The report of the board was made public at Winnipeg Monday. On March 22, 1907, the Canadian industrial disputes investigation act went Into effect The law provides for boards of conciliation and Investi gation, appointed for each dispute. The industries to which the law ap plies are those known as public utili ties, such as steam and electric rail ways, power and lighting plants and similar Industrie, and may be extend ed to coal mines. FTom the time the law was pasted up to January 15, 1908, according to a bulletin of the departments of com merce and labor, 30 disputes became subject to Investigation, nnd in 28 cases strikes were averted or ended. The settlement of the most recent trouble on the Canadian Pacific is additional proof that the law works well. The most valuable fouture of the act Is claimed to be that it es tablished a regular form of procedure for bringing partlt together before a strike or lockout Is declared. So far as can be judged from the experience of the past year, the law has accomplished the main purpose for which It was enacted the pre vention of strikes and lockouts In public service industries. It has not adversely affected the condition of the workingmen or of the Industries where It has been applied. No em ployer complained that the law na hampered his business, and' It Is not reputed to have Influenced prices. There Is some opposition to the act among the unions to which It Is most directly applied, but as thc findings of the boards are not final It Is evi dent that no possible harm can be done by Investigation of Industrial disputes with conciliation and the averting of strikes the ends In view. Investigation, arbitration, concilia tion these are the forces operating In all civilized countries to bring em ployer and laborer together on a fair basis, and the success of the Cana dian act marks another advance In the right direction. Salt Lake Her ald. THEY'RE XOT TO BE BOSSED. Mr. Samuel Gompers appears to de sire to commit the vote of organized labor to one of the presidential can didates. Quite aside from the merits of the presidential candidates, it Is pretty safe to predict that Mr. Gom pers will not be able to deliver the vote on election day, says the Spokane Chronicle. As organized labor is constituted today It Is an utter Impossibility for any one man or group of men to com pel it to vote In a certain manner. There never has been a serfdom in labor's ranks In this country, and there never should be. When any one man assumes the of fice of dictator to organized labor, and attempts to swing the laboring men's votes like an ordinary boss, that man la bound to antagonize for unionism many people who otherwise are prepared to deal fairly with it, and to Invite dissension in the ranks of the men he pretends to represent. Working men can be trusted to be the first to resent the pleading to republicans, democrats, prohibitionists or the Independents. It Is not a ques tion of party, but of principle. CLOCKS THAT KEEP Time EXACT Scientific- men are busily engaged in the effort to produce a clock which shall keep exact time. So far, the principal competitors for tho primacy have been constructors of clocks of the observatories of Greenwich, Ley den, Berlin and Washington. The clock mounted In the Greenwich ob servatory in 1850 for the measure of time In astronomical observations, varied from absolute accuracy only one-seventh of a second -In 24 hours, but the beginning of the present cen tury another clock was Installed there which varies only one-twelfth of a second In a day: It is lately stated In a dispute on the subject that the clocks of Berlin and Leyden are even more exact, their variation being only one-fortieth to one-fiftieth of a second in 24 hours. But according to Professor Elch- elberger, the palm must be awarded to the clock In the naval observatory at Washington, which he saya varies only one-sixtieth of a second In 24 hours. To this statement the Greenwich observer answers that the comparison Is not well made; that at the present time clocks may be made to go with perfect theoretical accuracy if all the conditions of at mosphere were uniform. Small vari ations of the air, of pressure, of tem perature and humidity, produce vari ations in clocks the more noticeable the more delicate and exact the clocks are, so that to preserve perfect ex actitude in the movement of the ma chinery, which means the measure ment of time, it Is necessary to resort to artifices outside of the clockwork. Thus, for example, the new clock at Greenwich is Installed in a place where the temperature varies only five degrees In all the year and Is built with an automatic mechanism to correct the atmospheric pressure, so that it is said to maintain as cor rect time as the clock in the naval observatory at Washington. Port land Journal. While the city authorities are busy with the cleaning up movement they might consider the proposition of es tablishing city scavenger wagon for the purpose of removing the obnox- lous rubbish and filth. At present there are no regular scavenger wag ons and the householder who has trash to remove must first Induce a drayman to do the work for' him and then pay him a high price for his service. ' Possibly If the city main tained a public scavenger wagon, making regular rounds, the people would do better and the deadly mi crobe could be routed more effectively. Imperialism reaches a wretched pass remarks the Springfield Repub lican, when Earl Cromer, In the Brit ish house of lords, condemns the sys tem of education In India as the breeder of demagogues and agitators rather than loyal British subjects, and declares that a free press has been a success In neither India nor Egypt. What will England do with those countries ultimately, If the more educated and well-informed their peo ple become the more opposed they will be to alien government? ,. .. The business concern that handles perishable goods, whether it be a meat market, a fruit stand or a dairy, cannot hope to do a successful busi ness unless the owner realizes that from a patron's standpoint cleanli ness Is more than godliness. It is hot In Pendleton sometimes, but the warmth here is nothing com pared with the sweltering heat of the humid east where people die at a temperature of 95. The weather here is straightforward at least. THE MARATHOX RACE. And then the clerk of the course, turning to the starter, said, "All Is ready," whereupon the starter, an of ficer of the Greek army, gave out the conditions of the race, first in French and then In Greek, and, hav ing done that, paused, and baring his head addressed his own countrymen anew: "The Greeks had this run Inserted In the Olympic list," he said, "to commemorate the historic feat of the messenger who carried the news of the great victory of Marathon to the anxious waiters at Athens. "Which of us does not know It by heart? But It may be wise to re hearse It here. Know then that when the valiant Greeks had swept the field of Marathon their first thought was to get the news home. They sought a fleet courier, and found him In the person of a warrior who had fought all day against the Invading PersI ans and who was even then panting from his exertions. This one was only too proud to be chosen messenger Indeed, who would not be? and at the word he wag off, only dlscumber Ing himself of his heavier armor. His great, run was made with but one brief stop for refreshment on the way. He reached the market place of Athens in an incredibly short time, turned to the multitude, spoke the one word. 'Victory'' and dropped dead." Here the officer's voice choked, and for a moment he could not go on, and there were tears In the eyes of many others also. And then he went on. "And so may It be with us of Greece today victory or " "Death!" shouted severer. Fire which broke out In the log ging woods near the camp of the Pen insula Lumber company,( five miles west of Columbia City, Ore., from some unknown cause, got beyond control Sunday, and the company's entire force was called out to pro tect the roadbed and equipment. In trying to save the donkey engine the men did heroic work. Dan Burns, the foreman of the camp was over come with smoke, but revived and continued to work. All the en gines were saved, also the equip ment. About 200 acres of timber were burned. The fire Is now un der control.

Elbert Hubbard shows his kindly sentiments for the horse in the fol lowing letter which he recently wrote to James T. Angell, editor of Dumb Animals. Mr. Hubbard said: The Roycroft Fraternity, East Aurora, Erie County, N. Y. June 6, 1908 Dear Mr. Angell: I wish you would send me a few back numbers of your publication, Our Dumb Animals. I want to clip some of the things that you have said In behalf of the horses, and how they suffer in time of war. It seems to me that you are the only man In the world who has ever lifted up a voice for horses In war. They get no glory nor pension, but often you will hear of men milking the boast as to the number of horses that have been shot under them, without a thought of pity for the horses. If man Is under obligations to give his fellow men a square deal, I am Inclined to think that he should give a square deal to this servant that does so much for us, lives and wears out his life for our benefit. Therefore, with your permission, I am going to reprint some of the many choice things that you say along this line. With love and blessings ever, I am Sincerely yours, (Signed) ELBERT HUBBARD. JOEL ClIAXDLEIt 1LVRRIS. In ono of the last articles written by Joel Chandler Harris for his mag azine, appeared the following bit of philosophy characteristic of the dis tinguished writer: Let it nut be supposed by those who imagine that- they are unfortunate, that the colossal fortunes heaped up by modern business methods will add to the happiness of those who have allowed greed to have Its way. All the gold In the world will not buy an ounce of contentment. Its purchas ing power ceases where happiness is concerned. These statements are platitudes, of course, but it Is well once in awhile to shake a live and wriggling platitude In the face of the public if only to reassure some of the hopeless ones that God is in his world and that all is well.

"Catarrh, such as 1 suffered from, made life a burden to mo, my breath was offensive, stomach bad, and my bead stopped up so that I whs usually troubled with a headache, and although J tried many so-called remedies, noth ing gave me permanent relief. I was rather discouraged with all medicines when Peruna was rusgested to me. "However, I did buy a bottle, and be fore that was finished there was a marked chauge In my condition.
